Students aged 12 to 112 can learn how water and electricity are connected to each other!
Everybody is talking about the Energy Water Nexus, but what is it? http://www.abcwua.org/education/Energy_Water_Nexus.html
This 8-minute educational movie takes a humorous look at the relationship between water and electricity.
Intended for students in grades 6 and up, the movie explains some of the connections between water and electricity, and teaches students that if you want to save electricity, you should save water. Likewise, if you want to save water, you should save electricity. We provide a Student guide and Student Guide Answers to help explain the concept more fully.
The curriculum delves more deeply into the topic.
Students discover how water is used to make electricity, and how electricity is used to clean and deliver drinking water (as well as cleaning our wastewater).
Activity - Students must supply their town with electricity by using water.
They will need that electricity to supply drinking water. Watch out for drought! (Grade 6 and up)
